    NHS Forth Valley steps up winter measures

    Written by on December 4, 2019

    NHS Forth Valley’s announced a series of measures to ease pressure on the health service over winter.

    The health board’s introducing on-the-spot flu testing – in a bid to reduce the spread of infection.

    Outpatient antibiotic therapy’s set to be extended – a pilot last year led to nearly 400 patients receiving support at their local GP practice – rather than in hospital.

    There are also plans to boost the number of physios at Forth Valley Royal – with the expected icy weather leading to a rise in injuries from slipping.

    Andrea Fyfe, Director of Acute Services, NHS Forth Valley, who chairs the winter steering group said: “Winter is the busiest time of year for the NHS and is it vital we have plans in place to cope with the increase in demand. We are also appealing to local people to avoid putting pressure on the Emergency Department by making use of other local health services for minor illnesses and injuries. And it is not too late for anyone eligible for a free flu jab to take up the offer.”
